Being a volunteer with middle school can be intimidating at times. Like those moments that you ask a student “how’s it going” or “what’s new” and they give you a one-word answer or when they want to pour out their life on you and your not sure how to respond. Take about 10 minutes to watch this video to be prepared for those moments. Doug Fields dives into 3 different types of conversations that we face as leaders with middle school. We hope this helps you grow as a leader. Thank you for what you do!
